Cat 2015:-92.07(General) . Bcom (appearing in 2016)(institute of distance and open learning, University of mumbai):-69.46 . Currently working as a trainee in usher agro ltd(full time) from 01/08/2014-present. Entered 12 month work experience in Cat application form . Now, I got shortlisted for IIM-Shillong. But, after reading its admission policy which says that work experience only after completing bachelor degree should be entered. I suspect that I can be disqualified straight away! Please help all suggestions are welcome

CAT 15:92.07

@gaurav289018 but I filled up institute of distance and open learning university of mumbai in my cat application form, still I got the call, , doesn't that mean they accept distance graduation also?

I want to understand the normalization done ACROSS SECTIONS in Cat 2015. 

Currently, I observe scaled scores of VARC are on the higher side w.r.t other two sections given a same percentile in all sections. Total scaled score is a simple summation of the individual scaled score and percentile is derived on top of that. Where does it capture the normalization for difficulty of individual section? By simply adding scaled scores flat, essentially VARC received the highest weightage. Please correct me if I am worng. Appreciate a revert.

Puys who appeared for AIMCATs(TIME) may be able to relate with my query better as TIME used to scale scores as per difficulty level too.

Guys any1 feel that, there has been no normalisation done?.. Did the scaled score was more or less than the expected raw score. If there is a very small deviation, there is a good chance that there may be a problem with normalisation..

Yes the deviations seem to be small......attempted 17 in LRDI...if i got all right, then raw score should be 17*3=51....scaled score is 52.2...but i dont think there is any problem...
